Assassin's Creed: Mirage is supposed to be a return to the roots. We have long known that this will mean, among other things, a much smaller world than the gigantic areas available in Assassin's Creed Origins, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey and Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. So far, however, the developers have avoided stating more precisely how large the map will be in the latest installment. They mentioned it only now, during a recent presentation of the project.
- Baghdad, the city where the action of Assassin's Creed: Mirage will take place, will be roughly equivalent in size to Paris from Assassin's Creed: Unity and Constantinople from Assassin's Creed: Revelations.
- The game's map will not be limited to Baghdad. It will also include the surrounding areas and two additional small cities.
- In the game, Baghdad itself will contain four districts.
- As you can see, the game world available in Assassin's Creed: Mirage will still be large, but it will definitely be smaller than the huge maps from the latest RPG installments of the series.
Recall that according to earlier reports the game is expected to take about 15-20 hours to complete. We will most likely be able to be significantly extended this time if we want to take care of side activities and complete everything at 100%, but it will certainly not be a game in which we will clock hundreds of hours, as was the case with Odyssey or Valhalla. The latter game, by the way, was so huge that some fans complained about it, which turned out to be one of the inspirations for the devs to return to the roots of the series.
Assassin's Creed: Mirage is heading to PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 consoles, as well as the Amazon Luna streaming service. It is scheduled for release on October 12 this year.
